Senate majority leader Mitch McConnell Sunday called for the new Republican majority to repeal or eliminate key elements of the 2010 Affordable Care Act.
“He obviously doubled down on defending Obamacare; we think it’s a terrible piece of legislation,” McConnell told Dana Bash during an appearance on CNN’s State of the Union. “We’re certainly going to be voting on that. Either repeal or take out pieces of it, whether destroying the 40-hour work week, the medical device tax, the individual mandate — all of these are highly unpopular with the Amerian people. We’ll be voting on things I know he’s not going to like. I hope we can put them on his desk.”
